Talk and text are pretty straightforward when it comes to roaming, say, in the U.S., which is the country we Canadians travel to the most. But data roaming is just stressful. Without a roaming plan, it's downright scary to even try to estimate how much data will cost. And [i]with a roaming plan, so little data is included that it ends up treated as a very scarce resource that requires constant monitoring and management. It is [i]stressful.
I suggest that Koodo should explore partnering with a Canadian startup like Roam Mobility to offer plentiful data roaming in the U.S. I know I'd pay more for such a travel add-on, especially if it means I don't need to use a different phone number in the U.S. (which using Roam alone requires).
(Note: I do currently use Roam, but I'd prefer to use Koodo when I travel. I want to keep my phone number. I want streamlined customer support. I sacrifice both of those because even though it's less convenient, Roam is less [i]stressful.)
